Verdict

It's hard to look beyond KNAPPERS HILL, a smart, unbeaten bumper performer who rates an exciting prospect for novice hurdling. Earth Business still looked green when third at Taunton in the spring, so is open to further improvement, while Pikar is a respected newcomer from another top stable.
